Living An Unparalleled Life…
Certain locations around the world hold within them an unspoken power. They’re where wars are fought, fortunes are both lost – and found – and where legacies are made. These places are where past history became our present, and where our
present is ever evolving into a storied future. Life in these places tends to be better, more robust. The balance within them is just right. The air finds itself neither too hot, nor too cold. The soil is rich, and the wildlife richer. The plants have uncommonly good roots, and they’ve combined to provide the foundation for some of the world’s greatest societies. And, these places happen to be connected by a common thread. Unseen to the
naked eye, yet felt in its magnetic persuasion. It is the 42nd Parallel. Home to Russia, Italy, France, and Spain. And cities like Boston, Buffalo, Detroit, and Chicago. It’s the border of California and Oregon, New York and Pennsylvania, and, in many instances, countries like the United States and Canada.

And when it comes to beer, the 42nd parallel is unparalleled as well. Some of the world’s best hops grow along it, and in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, it’s where New York State hops grew bountiful and full-bodied. This tradition – and the
legacy of arguably the most important parallel on earth – have found a new home, and a new future, here: at 42 North.

Cities on the 42nd parallel are tough. And so is their hockey. This double IPA pays tribute to some of hockey’s most famous enforcers, the tough guys that roamed the blue lines to keep their teammates out of harm’s way.

Dragonship DIPA - 8% ABV - IBU 75 A total rethink of the Double IPA. Brewed with our Norwegian Voss Yeast at warm temperatures and excessively biotransform dry-hopped with Zythos, El Dorado, and Azacca to deliver huge tropical fruit flavor and aroma. Medium body and heavy haze. Inspired by Legendary Viking Explorer Leif Erikson who navigated his Dragonship across the northern Atlantic to be the first adventurer to land in the Americas. "Leif The Lucky's" dragon-carved ship and other longships in Viking lore were the key tools in making the Old Norse men such prolific explorers. Our use of the resilient Norwegian Voss yeast is an ode to the rough and tough Viking culture and their seafaring vessels.
